Synopsis

This unit considers the quality and quantity aspects of water resources management. Tools and techniques appropriate for design and analysis of water resource systems are introduced, starting from a development of quantitative hydrologic modelling, which is subsequently extended to quantitative sediment and nutrient transport modelling. The principles of water quantity and quality modelling are then applied within a framework that allows the assessment of water quality in various watercourses.
